Upload a video to an activity

When you upload a video to an activity, Ruzuku will host that video for you. We'll also automatically convert your video into a Web- and mobile-optimized format for your students to view.

By default, Ruzuku transcodes all video files that are uploaded into SD quality. High-definition (HD) video is video of higher resolution and quality than standard-definition (SD). Since Ruzuku transcodes all videos to SD, there may be some loss in quality and resolution if you are uploading a HD quality video. Ruzuku only supports SD quality video at this time.

Note that each video file must be no larger than 2,000 MB (2 GB).
